Abstract

Urinary incontinence is still one of the major drawbacks following radical prostatectomy. It is considered even more bothersome than erectile dysfunction, even if its incidence is lower. According to the EAU guidelines, the incidence of definitive incontinence is about 7.7 % [1] whereas according to the AUA guidelines, the reported risk of urinary incontinence following prostate cancer therapies ranged from 3 to 74 % for radical prostatectomy [2].
